B. & O. Telegraph Company

Extending Its Lines in Texas.

Twenty-four Baltimore & Ohio Telegraph employes were arrested here several days ago at the instigation of the Western Union Telegraph Company, but in the name of the Texas & Pacific railway, that company claiming that the B. & O. Telegraph Company was trespassing on its right of way, which, however, had been previously condemned under the general telegraph law of Texas. As soon as the case was heard the man were released. The Judge ruled that the railway company should pay the costs. The B. & O. Telegraph Company obtained an injunction from the United States Court restraining the Texas & Pacific Railway Company from any further interference with the B. & O. Company's men or property in Fannin and Red River counties, Texas. Work on the B. & O. line is progeessing [sic] progressing rapidly, and now, with all obstacles out of the way, connection will be formed with the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe railway lines, reaching Galveston, Houston and other important cities in Texas by December 1.
